District of Barriere Mayor Bill Humphreys has announced he is putting his name forward to replace Thompson Nicola Regional District board chair Randy Murray.  Murray says he will not be running for a third term in the chair’s seat due to time constraints, but will remain as director for the Nicola Valley.

Humphreys has commented that he does appreciate the contribution of the Kamloops contingent on the TNRD board, but that his personal feelings are “the TNRD is really about the small rural communities”.

Kamloops representative Ken Christian and Savona director Ronaye Elliott have also voiced their intentions to run for the position.

Humphreys has been a TNRD director for two years, and says he is confident of being able to juggle the additional responsibilities that would come with the chair’s position along with his mayoral duties in Barriere.


The election of the chair will take place at the TNRD’s  inaugural meeting on Dec. 19.
